 Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001) Rated NR

It’s Monday morning. Bridget has woken up with a headache, a hangover and her boss. Wickedly clever, this tale of Miss Jones’s yearlong odyssey from Mr. Right-here-right-now to Mr. Right delivers a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the female mind.

 When Harry Met Sally (1989) Rated R

Can men and women remain friends without sex getting in the way?

As the two draw closer, the question resurfaces: Can they stay just pals?
